A phytosociological study of Baja Californian salt marshes and mangroves is made The sigmatistic phytosociological approach is used to describe the zonation of sixteen recognized associations and to define the optimum zone of several halophilous plants and communities. Ecological, structural and biogeographical data are provided for every association, and its syntaxonomical position is discussed.

    Estuarine saltmarshes are widely recognized as highly productive and biologically diverse systems. The Indian River Lagoon (IRL) is a 250 km long 'Estuary of National Significance' along Florida's east coast and is known as one of North America's most diverse estuaries. Like most North American...
